Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I chose Werner to meet with a friend for a lunch l. We stayed in an open courtyard in the shade, since it was hot day. We ordered quiches with salmon, and brie cheese/ pears ; also a cinnamon roll and a cake - that...all was very tasty. Werner Cafe is a historical place near the Tartu University, visited by the professors for a nice cup of coffee. The place would be perfect with some update of interior;and proper ventilation/air conditioning. Meanwhile, the kitchen is good,and worth trying !More

Beatiful old building hosting the most charming cafe. Excellent coffee with sweet bakery produce that will melt in your mouth. Very helpful staff (finding out allergens etc). Go if you have a chance!

Werner Cafe is very central in Tartu, just across from the university and only a few steps from the old city's main square and pedestrian thoroughfares. I went there to work at the ol' laptop for a couple hours in the early afternoon, and was...lucky to get a small table. The pastries and cakes all look amazing, but alas I had to limit myself to just a tea and a couple pastries, all of which were perfect. I will be going back for cake! The cafe was never "too busy" but it was pretty consistently busy, and a few people hoping to get a table for 4 or more couldn't find a spot. I'd say drop by anytime, but consider planning your timing if you're a family or group of friends. Will be going back later for cake(s)!More

Good lunch soup (not a very large bowl) for 4.90. The choice varies. Wonderful cakes from 3-5 euros mostly. There are several gluten free cakes, although there is possible cross-contamination, I guess. They name them "wheat-free" to be correct and you should ask for them,...the labels do not have allergen info. I am celiac and haven't suffered any notable symptoms afterwards, though. The coffee is always good, I like cappuccino with almond milk especially.More

Today's lunch special was a ball of fried ground chicken, a handul of french fries, and a spoonful of shredded cabbage salad, for €5.90. Included - tap water and bread (good, with hazlenuts, but no butter - seriously? this is the only place in Tartu...that offers bread that doesn't have butter!). However, the chicken ball was so over-salted that I had an aftertaste for 10 minutes. It's a health-hazard, a warning label should be on every table for people with hypertension to avoid it like the plague. Moreover, although unfortunately common to Estonian cuisine, there was a marked absence of any other herb or spice. There's not even pepper on the tables! I wanted to quietly point out these things to the manager, Liis, but I was told that she's too busy to come and meet me. Never, anywhere in the world I've eaten, has this been a response to a request for a manager.- On the other hand, not to be totally negative, the coffee shop and pastries, quiche, including vegan options, on the ground floor of this cafe have always been excellent. Hence my disappointment, indeed dismay, with the luch. Avoid the lunch! There are plenty of places in Tartu (especially Asian restaurants) that offer a tasty lunch (and not health risks) for around €5.More

Got recommendation to visit this cafe from friends. Very good service and tasty coffee and macaroons. I was in the rush and ordered as take away, but atmosphere inside seemed very nice - next time should try sit down and enjoy coffee there.

Super delicious cakes and cultivated coffee culture at affordable prices. Whether for a short coffee in between or for a longer break. Kaffee Werner is always a good address.
